David Moyes says he has no intention of leaving West Ham United after being linked with the vacant Celtic job.

The West Ham boss is set to sign a new deal with the Hammers after turning them from a relegation-threatened side into a club chasing European football.

Celtic are on the lookout for a new manager following the departure of Neil Lennon during the week but Moyes - who spent time at the Glasgow club as a player in the 1980s - says he's going nowhere.

"I have no intentions of going anywhere," he said.

"We are quietly ticking things along here. I just want to go about the job and being professional.

"Contracts are not that important in football management."

West Ham are currently fourth in the Premier League with 13 games to play and play leaders Manchester City on Saturday.

The Hammers also have games against Leeds United, Manchester United and Arsenal to come before the end of March.

"I don’t want anything to get in the way of what we’re doing just now," said Moyes.

"I’m not going to come out and say I’m signing a big contract or doing anything else that in any way might change things around.

"I just really want to go about the job and try and be professional.

"I am really happy here, I enjoy the people I work with and there has been great improvement on and off the field here at West Ham.

"I’m hoping to continue making them better and hopefully we can start to sustain a level of league position that we’re in at the moment."

Moyes also revealed that there is a clause in his contract to trigger a new deal barring a huge dip in form.

"I’ve got something if we finish I think it’s above 13th where automatically it kicks in anyway if I choose - it’s still my choosing.

"As I said, there’s no, there’s no big panic, and I don’t feel under any pressure with it.

"I don’t want anybody at the club or anybody else to feel under pressure by it because it’s not, we’ll get it sorted."
